I approached Fiona due to issues with an imbalance in my hormones, which has led to fertility problems. Fiona took time and consideration into looking at my life’s medical and health history (from birth and early childhood through to adulthood) to really uncover some of the deep-rooted health problems I was suffering from. From this research, together with her extensive knowledge of nutrition, she tailored a nutrition programme to my needs over the course of 3 months. I work in the fitness and health industry, but even with my base knowledge in nutrition I received a whole new education on food as medicine and through Fiona’s advice I have completely transformed my gut health. The biggest game-changer for me, however, was Fiona’s guidance in helping me understand how to reduce my stress levels and the importance of self-care. It is Fiona’s holistic approach to health and nutrition as one of the main reasons why I would recommend her services as a Nutritional Therapist.
I have always struggled with food and found it really hard to get the right balance. Fiona’s expertise in the field has made me think so differently about food, and how to use it as a tool to lose weight and become healthier. I absolutely love the approach and structure she has set for me. Even though I am still in the early days of my path, she has really helped me achieve what I set out in such a short amount of time. Not only has her guidance given me a better relationship with food, but I honestly feel she has changed my life for the better.
My digestion has vastly improved thanks to Fiona’s excellent nutrition program. This has been truly life-changing for me, as my digestion has always been a problem. I now feel my digestion is much more robust and Fiona has left me with an easy-to-follow program, which also includes adding delicious foods to my meals! She has also given me a lot of information on how to improve my assimilation of food and she can back up all she says with reference to solid research.
After injuring myself at the gym I suffered from severe neck pain for years. I went to see countless physiotherapists and osteopathists to try to resolve the problem. Unfortunately the pain never went away for more than a couple of weeks. I grew more and more despondent about my condition and didn’t know what else I could do. After speaking to a colleague, they said I should look into how my diet may be playing a role in my pain, and recommended Fiona. With Fiona’s help I discovered that my diet was causing a great deal of ongoing inflammation, which in turn was causing me a lot of pain and limited muscular mobility. I would never have believed that my diet could have been having such an effect. Fiona was very supportive throughout the process and helped me to make the changes I needed to start seeing results. What I liked most about working with Fiona was the personalised nature of the plan she made for me, and how it was really tailored to the specifics of my condition. She recognises that behaviours surrounding food can take time to change, and was able to provide me with alternatives to ease the process. I found Fiona incredible to work with. From initial contact, through to the weeks afterward working with her, it was really easy. I’d highly recommend Fiona—she backed up everything with the most up-to date-research in nutrition and Functional Medicine. More importantly I’m pain free and back being active.
With all the conflicting information in the media around health and wellbeing, Fiona simplifies this and tailors advice directly to your needs. Since seeing her, my symptoms have hugely reduced and I feel better than ever! She has offered me flexibility, understanding and has never placed severe restrictions on my diet or lifestyle. She cleverly grades her intervention which means that habits can be formed more easily, and I have certainly had success with this method. She has educated me around my targeted aspects of nutritional therapy (and more), which has empowered me to keep practising this in the future. I can't thank her enough.
